SALT LAKE CITY - Doc Brown is coming all the way back from the future to visit Salt Lake City.
Christopher Lloyd, who played Doc Brown in the “Back to the Future” movies, is just one of the guests who will be on hand for this September’s Salt Lake Comic Con. Convention organizers announced the first round of guests, which also includes a Ghostbuster and a pirate, at a press conference on May 13.
“There is no question our September event will be the biggest and best convention yet," said Bryan Brandenburg, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing at Salt Lake Comic Con. "With the incredible guest lineup we have planned, the new features and programming we are certain to over-deliver to our fans, guests and partners once again.”
Other guests include Bruce Campbell, best known for the original “Evil Dead” movies; Cary Elwes, best known as Wesley in “The Princess Bride;” Ernie Hudson, who played Winston in the “Ghostbusters” movies; John Barrowman, best known as Captain Jack Harkness in “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood,” and more.
Organizers also announced discounted tickets for those who purchase early, with three-day passes currently on sale for $30. The tickets will slowly increase in price over the coming months, up to $60 at the time of the convention.
“Our fans are so supportive and passionate about Comic Con that we wanted to reward them for buying early,” said Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con Founder and Show Producer. “The continued fan support of these events allows us to expand Salt Lake Comic Con, already the largest convention in the state, and continue to attract the best celebrities, comic creators and vendors to come to Utah. Our conventions are so good they are now attracting fans from all over the world.”
